You Are My Sunshine! {CTD441}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge!  This week, Amy Rysavy has challenged us to use lavender, aqua, light pink and white! Such a PRETTY combination!

I’ve used the ADORABLE new Pure Innocence Beach Day, Pure Innocence Beach Day Die-namics and Cloud Stencil for my card today!


I am completely enamored with the new Cloud Stencil!  I started with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock and then using the Cloud Stencil and Sno Cone Premium Dye Ink to create the sky.  I cut a panel of Sno Cone Card Stock using the Ocean Waves Die-namics, and then coated it with a Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker for the sparkly ocean.  I then cut a panel of Natural Card Stock using the Rolling Hills Die-namics for the “sand”.

I cut this DARLING new PI and her castle from X-Press It Blending Card using the Pure Innocence Beach Day Die-namics, and then stamped her and her castle using Pure Innocence Beach Day with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I colored them with Copic Markers, and I paper pieced her bikini and her sun hat using a piece of patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Confection Paper Pack.  SO sweet, right? I popped her and her castle up with Foam Tape, and stamped “You Are My Sunshine” using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.




Check out what the Color Throwdown Team has created today!
